The Super Eagles number one was in between the stick when Nigeria defeated Liberia in a World Cup qualifier by 2-0.
The 22-year-old who had little or nothing to do in the game against the Lone Stars posted his girlfriend on his Insta Story.
The dark-skinned lady was putting on a black gown holding Okoye as she tried to kiss him when the photo was taken.
The Sparta Rotterdam goalkeeper captioned the photo "My Queen" which shows he was missing her dearly after a few days apart from each other.
Okoye who is born to a Nigerian father and a German mother would be the preferred choice when the Super Eagles take on Cape Verde in their next game.

The goalie earned a permanent deal with Sparta Rotterdam after a successful loan spell last season where he was named the club's best player.
